I finally have some pics so if anyone could give me suggestions of what I need that would be so great.
Here's what I posted last time:
Unfortunately I am not the greatest repariman so if you can help I would apriciate it. Questions:
1. I have 1 arm replacement. What else do I need? Bearings, tools, grease?
2. Anyone know a good place to buy these things online?
Any help is much appriciated.
Looks like a pretty common "Ashtabula" crank to me.
Wasn't the Ashtabula crank a one piece design?
If so the crank in your picture is toast.
You state you have 1 arm replacement, Not sure
what you are referring to, but if you have Astabula
you are going to have to replace the entire piece.
I'd suggest that you check Old Roads web site
which deals with cruisers more than lightweights.

Yep, Schwinn one piece crank. We've got 'em in stock, along with bearings, races, cups, etc. Send email.
